foundation of all satisfactory and efficient living. To this end instructs 
by a thoroughly trained and experienced faculty is maintained on a huH 
college level, and each girl's physical well-being is promoted through in|! 
vidual attention to her health problems and through a systematic cour» 
of physical education. 

Equally necessary to a balanced personality is the development of 
emotional poise and stability. With the conviction that intelligent and 
happy adjustment to the demands of the social group within the Khod 
may afford an invaluable pattern for later and more complex social ad- 
justments, Frances Shimer makes every effort to create a group life tha: 
is well-regulated and yet gives freedom for the development of individual 
responsibility. 

Frances Shimer believes that happiness in a changing world dependi 
in a large measure on the cultivation of definite standards of value, moral 
and aesthetic, which may serve as touchstones of individual taste and 
conduct in a confused and experimentally-minded society. Through x 
well-rounded curriculum in the arts the student is acquainted with the 
best cultural traditions of the past and is made aware of the continuity 
of past and present. Student clubs afford opportunity for further devd- 
opment of cultural and vocational interests. 

Frances Shimer seeks to inspire Christian ideals and to direct the 
social intelligence of the individual toward expression in altruistic actico. 
Practical application of ideals and attitudes is afforded by the active 
of a genuinely functioning student council which formulates and oraa 
out the behavior code of the group and fosters in the students a sensed 
individual and social responsibility. The religious hfe of the ^group a 
encouraged also by the Christian Service Uague, and by the chapd aad 
vesper services followed by informal discussions of individual probto 
around the fireside. The social, intellectual, and spiritual hfe of Fraaa 
Shimer is thus directed toward a goal of harmonious development in tnc 
highest ideals of womanhood. 

RELIGIOUS LIFE 

As in other aspects of student life, the aim is to provide the afflj 
phere of a home iTwhich religion will exercise its ™J^£ 
afford opportunity for the expression of altruistic motives, 1* "

relationship of student and teacher provide* a durable oversight of con- 
du ct and permits frequent conference regarding behavior difficulties 

Courses in Biblical history and teachings are provided in the curricu- 
lum , Sunday School classes organized especially for Frances Shimer 
jndentt. are maintained in the churches. The Christian Service Ua*ue 
affords opportunity for the expression of religious idealism and serves 
as a cohesive force among girls of different classes and ages. 

HEALTH 

Conditions on the campus have been designed to safeguard the health 
of itudents. Only students in good health arc received; young women 
who need the constant care of a physidan are not desired. A physician's 
certificate of general good health is required of all applicants for admi* 
con. All students have physical examinations on entrance; records of 
weight, posture, etc., are kept; and tlie work in Physical Education is 
planned for each one on the basis of these records. All cases of illness arc 
ortd for in the Infirmary. The resident nurse cares for minor ailments, 
and in addition carries on an educational program in the maintenance of 
good health. In cases of serious illness the student employs a special 
nurse and a physician. 

The food is wholesome and abundant. Parents will assist in pre- 
the good health of the students if they will limit the amount of 
♦pending money allowed for food and confectionery. 

SOCIAL LIFE 

The educational process recognized by the College is organized on 
the idea that the whole life of the student is a unit. Under these circum- 
nances the extra-curricular activities become second only in importance to 
the program of the curriculum. Social education is part of college train- 
ing. The activities of the various student organizations not only supply 
adequate diversion but give valuable training in social co-opcxation and in 
worthy use of leisure. The social atmosphere of the College is whole- 
sanely democratic. Every girl is expected to use and develop for the gen- 
eral benefit whatever social gifts she may possess. Appropriate dress, a 
pleasing manner, poise, graciousness, entertaining conversation, ability to 
appear at ease before an audience, are as much a part of the School ideal 
as are scholastic attainments. With the assistance of class counselors the 
students give class parties, lunches, dances, bazaars, teas, lawn fetes, con- 
certs, and plays; they plan menus, arrange decorations, devise costumes 
and stage properties. Occasionally they write their own plays. A Bruns- 
wick Pdntatropc with many valuable records aids in the cultivation of an 
appreciation of the best in music. 

The location of the College is exceptionally favorable for the cultiva- 
tion of interest in out-of-door life and sports. Golf, tennis, hockey, bas- 
kct ball, captain-ball, skiing, coasting, cross-country walks, riding, and 
picnicking are pans of the daily life, contributing to appetite and sound 
deep, and laying the foundations for physical health and mental poise.

GUIDANCE 

Discovery of interests and abilities is a genuine part of guidance. 
Mental alertness is measured by the most carefully made instrument*. 
Vocational and artistic skills and interests are determined insofar as they 
appear by means of various tests, examinations, and conferences. 

Every student should expect to succeed in her particular interem 
and abilities. If conditions interfering with success can be corrected by 
skilled attention and devotion it is the full duty of the institution to 
provide the means of correction. m 

All teachers are experienced counselors and assist in the direction of 
studies to insure success by the removal of whatever obstruction u the 
cause of the difficulty. Success cannot always be assured but where wronj 
methods of study, wrong ways of getting along with people, wrong 
tudes and wrong ideals interfere with the student s best achievement, 
much can be done by patient persistence and by the loyal co-operation of 
the student and her parents. 

THE DICKERSON ART GALLERY 

The functions of the Gallery are twofold: it is planned and main- 
tained as a means of creating, stimulating, and training a love of the 
beautiful in life and nature, and of facilitating the study of art and , 
knowledge of its history and methods. In developing the collection the 
policy is to select works of art which possess charm, beauty, and human 
mterest. It includes oils and water colors, sculptures (both in bronze and 
in plaster), etchings, ceramics, textiles, and other examples of art that 

have aesthetic character. , .... , , 

The collection includes canvases by the distinguished American , land- 
scape painter. William Wcndt; the noted portrait painter, Ralph Clark- 
STRudcU Ingerle; the late Walter Sargent; Edgar Forkncr; E. Mam

indude in the period of secondary education the first two yean*o 
work. The new institution, the junior college, is today doing an n^nS? 
proportion of the work of the college Freshman and Sop&w»re7«?^ 
is a significant fact that of the more than four hundred junior c 
now in existence only thirty^six were established prior to 1913 tehS 
fifteen are reported to have been rsraHished prior to 1907*. 
Shimer Junior College organized its first junior College class in 19(n^2 
since 1909 has graduated successive classes. ^ 

For students who wish to avoid the mass education and cocueqa» 
inattention to individual needs that characterize our umwCTfr j^rilil ^y 
organized junior college of high academic standing offers an ntrifc 
pr ep a r ation for the more specialised work of the upper years cf the c 
versxty and the graduate school. The successful transition frees tfe tA 
lively sheltered and directed life of the high school period to the a& 
strenuous adf*4ix*ct£d life of advanced university work is more oak 
assured by attendance at a junior college where attention is directed beb 
to high educational standards in harmony with university — pniwm 
and to training in the acquisition and expression of those individual *x 
social controls that ensure adequate stability of character. 

The many opportunities for exploring and testing one's abitiba aa£ 
interests within the field of the curriculum as well as by meam of t* 
social and cultural resources available make the junior college 2a to- 
excelled in s titu t i o n for those who wish to coodude their formal educate 
with the expiration of the junior college years. 

To these two groups of students the Junior College curricuha % 
adapted. Those students who wish the work of their first two yt 
meet the requirements of the upper division in the universities are paid 
into the acadrmy course which is described on page $6. On the ooc 
hand those students whose interests and aptitudes are dearly de£ 

aic, ait or speech are urged to enjoy the pursuit of these am and t 
the same time acquire a cultural background which will be both 
eating and useful to them. To such students an adaptation of the Go- 
eral course described 00 page ;6 is reco n rorndrd, or one of the on 
strictly pre -professional courses. 

ORGANIZATION 
The plan of organization is based upon the thesis that theneedia 
the students should govern the structure of the program u 
do their work. The physical, mental, and emotional charactenttsa 
students induded in the eleventh and twelfth high school yean aada 
the Fresfcnan and Sophomore college years are so similar that for ftr 
poaes of efficient organization and administration these fou r yeaa * 
integrated into ooe group, the first year being designated Fteabaao,«

MARKING SYSTEM 

The letters A to E are symbols used to indicate the darn*. < 
ficiency in any subject and may be interpreted as follows: 



Pc 



A-Supcrior C-Avcrage 

B-Above average D— Below average 

E — Failure 

The average or C group constitutes from 40 to 60 per cent nf 
students in each class according to the judgment of the instructor uL 
governed in the distribution of grades in classes enrolling ten or 
students by certain elastic maximum and minimum percental l** 
agreed upon by the faculty. The letter D represents the passing S 

As a rule, condition grades are not assigned by the faculty \L^Z 
special conditions prevail, however, which are not the result of a «tu<W 
inattention to her studies, incomplete work may be made up with chc^' 
sent of the instructor. A student who receives a final examination gS 
of E in any subject may request a second examination, providing & 
average grade in that subject for the semester is not less than C. Sud 
an examination, however, must be taken not later than four weeb afo 
the beginning of the next ensuing semester, and when taken may va 
result in a final semester grade higher than C. 

Supplementing the marking system is the grade point system, wfcki 
serves to set definite standards of achievement in terms of amount v£ 
quality of work. Grade points are assigned in the following manner: 

A grade of A earns 3 grade points for each semester hour of credt 
A grade of B earns 2 grade points for each semester hour of crefc 
A grade of C earns 1 grade point for each semester hour of crsk 
A grade of D earns grade points for each semester hour of crak 

Students in the lower division normally carry sixteen hours of wori 
each semester and in the upper division fifteen hours. 

Reports are sent to parents at the end of the first six weeks and it it 
close of the semester. Reports of students registered in the Prepantcrr 
School are sent to parents also at the end of the second six weeks' perkd 
Additional reports will be sent upon request to parents at any time 

REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION 

A minimum residence of one year is required for the diploma of the 
Junior College and for the high school graduation certificate. The dipSca

MISCELLANEOUS EXPENSES 
The amalgamation of all fees into a single comprehensive fee waj 

foe the purpose of informing all parents regarding their maximum 
liability to the College. Certain miscellaneous expenditures for the pur- 
c b 1 « of books and supplies arc necessary. It is desirable that these be 

It a minim u m and the co-operation of parents is aought In limiting 
the monthly allowance for the sake of a wise economy. 

The College Book Store stocks a supply of all books, supplies, and 
«utionery. and in addition keeps for sale toilet goods and articles cora- 

v required by students. Students may pay cash or maintain a charge 
account, an itemised copy of which is sent periodically to parents and i* 
due upon presentation. The Store has for sale a very well arranged stu- 
dent's account book with perforated monthly expense summaries which 
nuy be detached and sent to parents. It is recommended that parents re- 
quire the keeping of such an account and by this means encourage accu- 
rate justification of all expenditures. 

While most incidental expenses are governed by purely personal 
inclinations, a few that arc commonly incurred by all students may be 

oncd. A student is requested by her class to pay class dues of about 
$4.J0 per year, a large part of which is used to defray expenses of the 
dass prom. Clubs to which a student may belong request small contribu- 
tions for special occasions. For all such purposes it is probable that ten 
dollars per year will be the maximum requested of each student. 

A student bank is maintained in the Business Office. Deposits and 

Jrawals for personal expenses may be made at stated intervals. 

WITHDRAWAL 

Since all instructors are necessarily engaged for the year upor. 
basis of estimated needs, no part of the fee can be refunded due to with- 
drawal from school. Similarly, when a room is vacated no other student 
ony be assigned to that room since registration has already ceased. All 

-es and facilities are necessarily provided on the basis of a full 
scholastic year and economic administration forbids refunding of fees on 

tot of withdrawal. 

It is the practice, however, to make a concession when illness, a* 
certified by a physician's written statement, requires withdrawal. The cost 
of food, service excluded, up to the time of withdrawal forms the bass of

I COURSES OF INSTRUCTION 

For convenience the courses are divided into two group*, lower dm- 
*» and uppei f«VJ ton. the lower division comprising the first two years 
jnd the upper division the second two year* of the Junior College. 

The courses of instruction arc classified into seven groups 
m&jal science, fine arts, h,unc economics, language and literature' 
Efc^cal acicnce, secretarial studies and social science. These are arranged 

ibetically in the order listed above: B 

The scheme is as follows: 

x BjolMtal Science — Phy«oIo*y. biolojy. bocany. evolution 
phytic al education. 

b. Home Econoinict — Clothing, food*, design, home planning 
and turnistung, home management 

C Tine Aru-Mu : 

d. Language. Literature and Speech Art%— Engliih, Latin, French 
German, Speech, Dramatic Art. 

e. Physical Science and Mathematics— Physics, chemistry, astron- 
omy, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus. 

f Secretarial Studies— Typewriting, stenography. 

g. Social Science — History, civic*, sociology, economics, geog- 
raphy* psychology, education, religion. 

The numbering of courses indicates the year in which they normally 
lie given. For example : English 1 1 is given in the first semester of the 
first year of the Junior College (11th grade of high school). English 12 
is given in the second semester of the same year. The number 21 indicates 
i course given in the second year, etc. An odd number indicates the first 
semester, while an even number indicates the second semester. Courses 
are required to be taken in the year specified unless otherwise indicated. 
Registration in certain courses may be secured by qualified students who 
iccurc the consent of the instructor. 

In a similar manner courses numbered 31 are courses taken in the 
first semester of the third year of the junior college, equivalent to the first 
■ir of college, and the courses numbered 41 are regularly taken the first 
semester of the fourth year. 

Students desiring to continue their academic work in a university or 
* Jour year college with junior standing should meet as far as possible the 
requirements of the first two years of the college to which they intend to 
transfer. In case this college is not definitely determined the pre-academic 
course outlined below is recommended.

I PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

The aim of Physical Education is to aid in establishing found health 
kiHu. including daily cxcrci.se, and to develop a spirit of good sportsman- 
high ideals of team co-operation, and a desire for continued physical 
ivity. 

At the beginning of each year each student is given a physical exa: 

terminc general health condition, physical efficiency, and in- 

jvidual needs. Upon the basis of this examination, complete records of 

ixt be h student is assigned to a particular phase of the pro* 

Warn of activities. Examinations are repeated in whole or En part as often 

:reJ. Weight and development records are secured with sufficient 

frequency to insure adequate oversight of all students. 

Each student is required to have a gymnasium costume consisting of 

two romper suits, white socks, and shoes. Dancing sandals and swimming 

iuit .ire also required for those who participate in these activities. Since 

|thc regulation with reference to the costume requirements will be strictly 

| enforced, it is necessary to purchase the uniform through the Book Store 

arrival. 

In the fall and spring the classes engage in outdoor activities, such as 

tennis, golf, field hockey, baseball, and riding. The annual May Fete u 

an event requiring many varieties of athletic ability. Winter work includes 

J basketball, volley ball, indoor work, and dancing, both tap and ballet. 

ming is offered throughout the year. During the year opportunity 

iven to pass Red Cross Junior and Senior life saving tests. 

Requirements tor Graduation 

A minimum of four periods per week or equivalent is required of all 
lower division students and two periods per week for upper division stu- 
dents. Credit for Physical Education may not be included in the 15 units 
required for a high school diploma nor in the total of 60 credits required 
in the upper division. It is nevertheless one of the requirements for grad- 
uation, and no student may be excused except on the written statement 
of a qualified physician. Under such conditions a modified program of 
exercise is prescribed. An average grade of C in physical education is 
required for each year in residence.

GRAPHIC AND PLASTIC ARTS 

The Study of An m the Junior College 
The four-year Junior College organization enables the you™ 

to begin professional art study two years in advaru e of wh it h 

possible. The courses of study offered in the art deoai «f r: 
so arranged that the first two years of general art study arc iinE? 1 ** 
the last two years of special study, thus uniting the four years i«! ** 
integrated unit. The break which ordinarily occurs between art in i2l 
school and art in college, university or institute is thus eliminated A 
the completion of the junior College art 00 

wuh lour years of systematic and integrated art mstru, fo ^jlf* 

to the regular academic work which any ticant college or umwS 

offers. The several years of integrated pract ,1 work in art spcakf 

themselves, and are to be eminently preferred to the year or two 2 
scattered study. The additional academic work offered to the ftude 
such a four year course gives a cultural background not afforded 
similar period of attendance in the special art school following the rw- 
ular secondary school. 

It is unquestionably true that the student with this hack.:! u .... 
be prepared to make significant creative contributions t orary 

art and life whether it be in a university, an art school, a home or a pro- 
fessional position. As a contributor to the ecoi tic life cf 
a more complex community, the junior college graduate in ill he 
able to foster meritorious performance in proportion to her discrir 

and artistic judgment. 

Art Expression in School Activities 

Competitions and contests conducted periodically and annually chal- 
lenge the art students to an awareness of the practical need for art in 
Jay life. Monetary awards and prizes, publication of distinctive 
designs in the numerous Junior College printed programs, bulletins, and 
in The Record are some of the devices employed to give adequate recog- 
ion to outstanding art students. The official school seal, program- 
. er designs for musicals and plays, and illustrations for this catalogue 
were designed by art students as major departmental projects. Festivals, 
bazaars, pageants, concerts, and athletic events inspire students to crate 
appropriate and suitable posters, unusual wall decorations and sa 
The Art Club members, consisting of students in classes in Gr 
Arts and in History of Art, as well as other interested students, sponsx 
teas and coffees in conjunction with current exhibitions of art shown at

Objectives of the Art Department 
The courses in Graphic Art aim: 

1. To engender love of beauty by making the student artistically 
and personally aware of forms showing fine arrangement of line, 
mass, value and color — a beautiful painting, an excdlendy pro- 
portioned building, a finely decorated fabric, or an inspiring 
piece of sculpture. 

2, To develop standards of good taste by helping the pupil to pro- 
mote the habit of thoughtful considerations before making de- 
cisions which involve judgment and choice in the selection and 
arrangement of things intimately connected with daily living. 
The establishment of standards of good taste and discrimination 

the correct background to the young woman who will be- 
;ca dynamic force for good in a community. 

To acquaint the students with the fin. ressions of the past 

he will understand and enjoy her rich u nee in Art. 

4. To gratify the to create by affording exercise in the tech- 

nical processes through which works of art are expressed and 
understood. 



Graphic Arts for Lower Division Students 
Art courses are general during the first two years of the Junior 
College. They include free-hand drawing from nature, life and still-ljfe, 
perspective, lettering, decorative designing, painting, modeling and his- 
tory of art, C I 112, and 21-22, respectively, designed for iresh-

I MUSIC 

Instruction in piano, voice, and violin is given upon the same h™ 
^demic subject.. For time spent the umt of measurement is iffij 
^th that used in all other subject*. The degree of difficulty ."iS 

approximately equal. w,iy w ™° 

Mu«c instruction is rapidly becoming organised in definite eraded 
steps of progress Accompanying these grades are academic requirLentt 
trolly adopted by professional schools. Language and litem e 
history, psychology, he dranu and related subjects are prerequisites io 
advanced professional study. The junior college offer, exceptional oppor* 
tunnies for the completion of these requirements before intensive amli- 
cation to exclusively professional study of music is undertaken. 

Students electing courses in applied music must also pursue courses 
in the history or theory of music. The amount of such work may not be 
less than one-third of the amount in applied music. For lower division 
students Fundamentals of Music 1 1-12 may be taken to meet the require- 
ment in music theory. Upper division students may elect History of 

c 51-32, Appreciation of Music 33-34, Theory of Music 35*36 and 
Hirmony 41-42. 

No credit for applied music alone, except in glee club and orchestra 
is granted. Final credit for applied music is not approved until the re- 
quired amount of theoretical work has been completed. If preparation for 
courses in applied music in the upper division is not sufficient, the ele- 
mentary courses may be taken with the approval of the instructor, but no 
credit will be given. 

The aim of the department is to train students who are seriously 
interested in music. Consequently, half or part-time courses are only 
rarely approved. 

The following outline of courses applies to upper division students 
and represents a normal program of work. Other students should consult 
the instructor when electing courses in piano.

LIBRARY SCIENCE 

Junior college students in the Upper Division who arc interested in 
Librarianship as a profession are advised to select courses which will pn> 
vide them with the necessary breadth of background. Most profeaiaul 
schools now require three or four years in approved liberal arts colkga 
for entrance. In the general college work which precedes the speculuei 
library course, the student is urged to plan her course so as to acquire i 
good background in literature, American, English, and foreign; a writ- 
ing knowledge of both French and German; an introduction to thc soda! 
sciences, economics, sociology, and history; a sufficient acquaintance with 
the sciences to enable her to read intelligently in those subjects. In special 
libraries and departmentalized public libraries there is also opportune 
for those who have specialized in music, art, and education. Abilxl 
use the typewriter is a great asset. 

A limited number of students who are particularly interested, may 
secure library experience by assisting an hour a day during their senior 
year. 

The specific courses suggested below meet these general require; 
ments. Variations in this program, designed to meet the interests et 
individual students, can readily be made.

SPEECH ARTS 

The aim of this department is fourfold: first, to develop an an 
tion of the art of fine speaking; second, to aid the student of literati 
oral expression; third, to give the student who expects to major in 
or dramatic work a foundation for university study; fourth, to too* 
creative spirit through the medium of the theatre. rt * 

Those expecting to enter special schools of speech, or to major 
speech arts at any of the universities should arrange a conference vridnk 
instructor before planning a course of study in order to insure the risk 
choice of studies. " * ^ 

Students of speech are urged to elect courses in dancing, frcehi^ 
drawing, design, music, and history of art. Exceptional opportunui^ 
offered at Frances Shimcr to study these arts which are so closely related 
to speech and drama.

SOCIAL SCIENCES 

The aim of the social sciences is to give the student perspective a* 
to prevent her submergence by the details of the knowledge of the wo!u 
in which she live* The background for an intelligent understanding 1 ^ 
things as they are is to be found in the history of the past. Other co^ 
are concerned primarily with the impact of forces generally kno^ 
the industrial revolution on economic, social and political institution 
Eventually it is hoped that the student will have an appreciation of & 
major social problems of the present day and not only will be eager to 
receive the rich heritage of the race but will also be enabled to contribute 
to its enrichment.

21-22— American History and Government. The purpoieof 
the unified course in American history and government is that of ir.tt

account of our political institutions. Two reasons may be 
attempting to do this. In the first place a large portion of the mforo- 
tion in both courses is the same. It is believed, therefore, thai u isteadtf 
the time being used for the mere repetition of subject matenal. - 
well be used for a broadening and deepening of the content studttAh 
tie second place such a course makes possablc a greater insight andunfe 
standing of our political institutions through the presentation of tkh*

STUDENT REGULATIONS 

Residence halls — Students from out of town arc required 
cases, unless residing with near relatives, to occupy rooms in the rc^ 
halls. Students living on the campus avoid many distractions e^mT^ 



s come :-■ 



dose contact with the life of the School, and are more likely to 
the school work as the one thing demanding their best efforts. Thev^ 
led to cultivate a healthy spirit of self-reliance. Not infrequent^ £ 
best and most lasting results of school life are derived from itsaaeoriJ^J 
Rules for house students are furnished on entrance. In general tt* 
provide for such order and behavior as would be expected in a cultto2 
home. The students in the Junior College have student government un& 
a constitution adopted by themselves and approved by the Faculty, ft^, 
aratory School pupils are free within the boundaries of the campy, \ 
recreation hours. 

The rooms are designed to be occupied by two students. An cxtn 
charge of thirty dollars each semester is made for a single room. J& 
rooms are furnished with single beds (3 feet x 6 feet 3 inches), pj]^ 
(20 inches wide), chairs, study tables, chest of drawers, and wind* 
shades. The windows arc 6 x 4 feet; the tops of the chests of drawee 
38 x 19 inches. Students furnish rugs (if desired), bedding including 
mattress pad, curtains, towels, six napkins (18 inches square) ai\d tuftn 
ring. cup. jor\, and spoon (for use at spreads and picnics). It is fa 
recommended tliat they provide themselves with a hot- toner bottle, a 
umbrella, and heavy teaming shoes. 

Students are required to care for their own rooms. On dayi who 

classes are in session the rooms must be clean and in order by eight o'ekd 

As a precaution against fire, the use of matches and electric devica 

is prohibited in students' rooms. Electric plates and irons are providd 

at convenient places. 

Dress — Definite rules for dress arc not prescribed, since dress is ex- 
pressive of individuality. It is suggested, however, that in the selecra 
of clothing and shoes two standards be observed : suitability and ampkcf. 
Students are expected to come supplied with suits and dresses which med 
the requirements for general wear, sports, and soaal function! W 
school wear, one-piece frocks of material suited to the season have fen 
found satisfactory. A simple, but appropriate toilet for dinner » o- 
pected. Occasionally a semi-formal or dinner dress is needed; anjw 
formal school functions, evening dress appropriate to the age oil* 
student is essential. A white sports dress is needed at »°™«™ 
time and for imuations into organizations. The same rule of smjWj 
and suitability applies to shoes. High beds are out o place on tfc Jg 
except for evening. For every day and for walking, plain, «dlt 
sports oxfords with low or medium heels arc best.

AND PREPARATORY SCHOOL 



Laundry-el**" * which is to be sent to the laundry ihould be 
obin and should be marked by means of name tape* bearing the full 
Jie, not the initials only. These may be ordered through the business 
X c at any time and the cost charged to the student's bookstore account. 
° nc t.tpes will be sent directly to the student.', borne or to the 

ted. Laundry rates are considerably below commercial 
Aarvvs. A weekly allowance of sixty cents is granted each student. An 
JInount of laundry in excess of this will be charged to the student's book- 
jKjtc account. 

Absences— Students are expected to .mend all school exercises. Par- 
qits ire requested not to ask that their daughters be excused before the 
^crk is entirely completed at vacations; such request* are rarely granted. 
TV full work continue* to the hour of closing, and full work begins at 
the hour of opening after winter and spring vacations. 

No student may under any circumstances leave town without per- 
mission previously obtained from the Dean on written request of the 
parent. Reasonable week end absences arc allowed. Such requests should 
be addressed directly to the Dean and in ample time for correspondence, 
frequent absences interfere with the studies and health of the student 

■med and also disturb the wori{ of other students, seriously dimin* 
fcJring the efficiency of the instructors. 

Guests — Parents who come to inspect the College, or who bring 
their daughters, are particularly welcome. A moderate charge is made 
for meals and lodging. When notified in advance, arrangements will be 
nude for the entertainment of friends of students in the village not to 

J three days at one time. Students are not excused from any regular 
school duty on account of guests. 

Allowances — Extravagance in the use of money is discouraged. Par* 
aits arc urged to give their daughters a reasonable monthly allowance. 
Banking facilities are furnished by the business office for the benefit of 
itudcnt depositors. 

Telephones — The use of the telephone is restricted, in the interest 
of students. All conversations are limited to parents and confined to rec* 
nation hours. Communication by telephone or telegraph is subject to 
approval by the Dean. 

Express and telegrams— All express and telegrams should be sent in 
earc of the School and should be prepaid to avoid delay. 

Permissions — Special requests for permissions of any kind should 
come from the parent to the Dean direct, not through the student. Until 
wntten request has been made to the Dean and direct answer has been 
received, parents should not consent to requests by pupils, involving sus- 
pension of School regulations. 

Secret societies— All secret societies are forbidden.
